49ers have reached out to LT Russell Okung

Mar 10, 2016 at 6:15 PM--


USA TODAY's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have reached out to LT Russell Okung (Seahawks). Ian Rapoport reported earlier that both the New York Giants and the Detroit Lions have visits set up with Okung.


Okung has spent his entire career withe the Seattle Seahawks since being drafted out of Oklahoma State in the 2010 NFL Draft with the sixth overall selection.

Okung is listed as the best available offensive tackle available in free agency by Rotoworld.com. He is a longtime starter for the Seahawks and considered to be Seattle's best offensive lineman. Okung has played in 72 games and started each. Although, he has missed some time with injuries over his career. He made the Pro Bowl in 2012 and was part of the Seahawks' Super Bowl XLVIII winning season.

The 49ers need help on the right side of the offensive line and Okung is used to the left side, so there is some question on how he would feel about moving to the other side or shifting the 49ers offensive line to accommodate him.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to step onto the Levi's Stadium football field and kick off their 2020 season, seven months after suffering a heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV. General manager John Lynch believes his squad has emerged from the offseason as a better unit. Now, the 49ers just have to go out and show that today against the Arizona Cardinals, and then the rest of their opponents this season. "The great thing about that, Greg, is that this is a show-me league," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers pre-game show (via Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports). "So we gotta show up and prove that. I believe that potentially we've got an

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo, offense have to play better after 49ers' loss to Cardinals

There's plenty of blame to go around for the 49ers' 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but one place the team will need to find some answers in a hurry is on offense, particularly in the passing game. On the surface, the numbers the 49ers put up through the air on Sunday don't look too bad, with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finishing with 259 yards, two touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 103.0 rating on 19 of 33 passing. But on Sunday there were certainly some inconsistencies in Garoppolo's game, which showed up on third and fourth downs in particular. The 49ers converted just two of 11 third-down opportunities on Sunday, while also falling short on each of their two chances on fourth down. One of Garoppolo's touchdown passes came on a
